COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison, the original Farmhouse Ale, was the refreshing invention of thirsty Belgian farmers. Wisconsin pale barleys brewed with Grains of Paradise in this bright new copper hued ale. Deceptively approachable, its complicated fermentation incorporates a blend of three Belgian yeast strains and is fully bottle conditioned. Fresh hops snap with lemon zest and peppery ginger notes, lending to its enigmatic personality. Enjoy, as this sassy Wisconsin Saison is at its best thirst quenching drinkability now.

UncleKorm (944) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle poured a slightly hazy gold w/ a quickly diminishing white head and some lacing. Moderate aromas of ginger, spices and funk. Initial flavor very light sweet to a light sour finish. Tastes are spice, leather, grass, and yeasty dough. Light to medium bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation with a dry alcohol feel in the finish.

jbruner (2715) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of funky Belgian farmhouse yeast, hints of grass and lemon. Taste is more toward malt, slightly oxidized, not sure how this was treated or how old it is down here in Georgia. Not bad, sure it was better fresh.

tom10101 (3278) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). From Rich, thanks! Cloudy golden/orange with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is quite fruity with grainy, honeyed sweetness and some spices. Taste is also fruity and grain with spices and moderate sweetness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Spicy finish. Not bad, but not easily drinkable/quenching and really nothing to crave for. Boring.

BiiruBierBeer (355) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Smell is honey and generic saison smell. Taste follows the nose with a pleasant honey note. Good medium to high carbonation with light foam that compliments the honey note.

Hazy gold pour. White head. Fruity, sweet, light grainy notes, bubblegum. Not overly saison-like.

kbudd19 (783) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle from Tom10101. Golden pour with some white frothy head. Aroma is grass, spices, cloves and a bit of fruity esters. Taste is hmmm, a bit of spice, grass, drops off a cliff real quick, very basic, light carbonation, with a watery palate. Disappointing.

JulienHuxley (3618) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is grainy, light banana, musty grain, bready notes. Taste is grrainy, very straightforward, light bready notes. Palate is a bit sweet, light carbonation. Pretty boring saison, I didnít dig this at all.

TXBadger (1666) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white fizzy head. Funk, light fruits, and some spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a raw wheat note.

Bottle from StFun. Thanks! The pour is a golden-orange color with a lasting white foam on top. The aroma is heavy on the fruity esters, with yeast, bread, and cotton candy joining in. This is sweet, too sweet, going down with lively carbonation and a gentle touch of spice. The body is heavy and sticky. As with the scent, thereís lots of fruity esters in the flavor department. A heavy yeast character and caramel notes add substance thatís not really needed. No funk and this doesnít ever dry out much. Whatís the abv of this? Tastes strong like a Tripel or some sort of Belgian Strong. I didnít dislike the bottle I had but itís not a good representation of a quality Saison.
